Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems
Toledo’s main source of water comes from Lake Erie. Water is filtered and treated at the Toledo Water Treatment Plant, which produces an average of 40 million gallons of water per day for the 287,208 residents of the greater Toledo area.
Limescale is a hard, off-white buildup that can be found on surfaces, appliances, and fixtures due to mineral deposits in hard water. Signs that you're dealing with limescale include:
- Buildup on fixtures, sinks, and tubs
- Clogged faucets and showerheads
- Rings around tubs and sinks
- Chalky deposits on kettles, pots, and pans

Poor-Quality, Hard Water
Dissolved iron and other hard minerals are added to the water during the filtration process. Because of this, the water tends to be harsh and of poor quality. Some results of this are:
- Hard-to-clean residue on dishes, sinks, and tubs
- Frequent malfunctioning of appliances
- Dry, itchy skin
- Laundry that is stiff and uncomfortably scratchy
Stains or Colored Water
Chlorine and chlorine by-products can also cause a host of other problems, including discoloration. While it may not be harmful, tinted water can leave stains around sinks and tubs, as well as on laundry and linens.
